Who should I freeze and why?

Postby chaddeihl » Mon Mar 07, 2011 5:58 am

I am in a 12 team 5x5 roto league and we get to freeze 4 players. Its important for me to keep the best 4 because this year I do not have a draft pick in the 1st, 3rd 5th or 10th rounds. Here are my choices and I need the best 4 in 5x5 league.

Joe Mauer
Nelson Cruz
Adrian Gonzalez
Adam Dunn
Roy Halladay
CC Sabathia
Cole Hamels

The 4 I am leaning toward are: Joe Mauer, Adrian Gonzalez, Adam Dunn & Roy Halladay. I am so tempted to replace one of them with Nelson Cruz but so far he has burned me every year. I know Adrian is coming off shoulder surgery, but I am hoping that will only make things better & Adam Dunn is in a hitter friendly park now - except that its in the AL and will be unfamiliar with the pitching thus lower walks and lower batting avg. Also, when he was with Cincinnati ( also a homer friendly park ) he didnt hit many more home runs than last year - so the hype on him hitting for more power may not really be justified.

I am curious to hear other thoughts.

Agon
Halladay
Cruz
Mauer

I like Cruz over Dunn. I'm not a Mauer lover, but i guess he beats out Dunn.
CC and Hamels no way.

Agreed. Like Dunn in Chicago but I still like Cruz more.
